from not knowing the science of this epidemic of violence. these are a few of the 23 executive actions that i'm announcing today, but as important as these steps are, they are in no way a substitute for action from members of congress. to make a real and lasting difference, congress, too, must act. and congress must act soon. and i'm calling on congress to pass some very specific proposals right away. first it's time for congress to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. [ applause ] the law already requires licensed gun dealers to run background checks. over the last 14 years, that's kept 1.5 million of the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun. but it's hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. that's not safe. that's not smart. that's not fair to responsible gun buyers or sellers. if you want to buy a gun, whether it's from a licensed dealer or a private seller, you should at least have to show you are not a felon or somebody legally prohibited from buying one. this is common sen

judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> and here is what the american people think about that. our brand-new cnn/orc poll shows 49% of the nation thinks that it is a manmade problem. you can see that just 23% say it's not a proven fact at all. i want to bring in our white house correspondent, dan lothian. there were a lot of things touched on in this speech, but the mention of global warming, did that seem to catch people by surprise? >> reporter: i think so. i mean, we've not heard a lot of conversation here in washington about climate change. i looked back just a few days ago i was putting together a piece for cnn.com and i was writing about the president's priorities over the next four years. at the end of that piece i tucked in a line about climate change. i remember thinking, it's been a while since i've heard about this. i have to go back to the first year of the president's first term where he tried to make some movement on climate change and then caught up in the economic crisis that got
